big fat nothing


see all the big welts?  yeah, me neither.  our spectacular appointment with the allergist revealed that layla is allergic to nothing.  so we're back to square one and we know nothing other than that something is causing her bladder issues and we don't know what.  maybe her doctor can put a little pressure on the urologist to see us.  who knows.  and food doesn't seem to be causing her skin issues, nor the rash she gets on her face after eating sometimes.  okay, that's not exactly accurate.  food is causing it, but not an allergy.  she has sensitive skin and when food gets smeared on her face, it irritates her skin.

so, as disappointed as i am that we've gotten nowhere here, i am looking on the bright side that she isn't allergic to something major like wheat or dairy that would create a significant lifestyle change in regards to our diet.  so in that respect, it's good news.  i just really want some answers.


  1. Well, at least you don't have the hell of a child with allergies now. That's always good.

  2. Wheat or dairy. Yeah, allergies to those would suck, lol. Just another bug in your ear. When we dealing with Joey's skin issues his dr. metioned that sometimes its a combination of things that cause a reaction. Not necessarily an alleric reaction, but still. This didn't help us much because it could be 2 or 3 things together. Like the laundry soap combined with the apple juice, combined with the yogurt, that kind of thing.

  3. Oh man,

    that is good that you don't have to change your diet and everything
    Hope you are able find out what is wrong. I would worry all the time.

  4. Glad to hear the scratch tests came out clean. Good luck figuring out what's going on with her!
